Install sentry-sdk from PyPI with the chalice extra:

pip install --upgrade sentry-sdk[chalice]

from chalice import Chalice

import sentry_sdk
from sentry_sdk.integrations.chalice import ChaliceIntegration


app = Chalice(app_name="appname")

from chalice import Chalice

sentry_sdk.init(...)  # as above

app = Chalice(app_name="helloworld")

@app.schedule(Rate(1, unit=Rate.MINUTES))
def every_minute(event):
    1/0  # raises an error

def index():
    1/0  # raises an error
    return {"hello": "world"}

  • Request data is attached to all events: HTTP method, URL, headers, form data, JSON payloads. Sentry excludes raw bodies and multipart file uploads. Sentry also excludes personally identifiable information (such as user ids, usernames, cookies, authorization headers, IP addresses) unless you set send_default_pii to True.

  • Each request has a separate scope. Changes to the scope within a view, for example setting a tag, will only apply to events sent as part of the request being handled.

  • Chalice: 1.16.0+
  • Python: 3.6+
